After a great debut that has managed to bring in over 1 million concurrent users, Cyberpunk 2077 has already dropped to less than quarter of that. This happened with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt as well, but after three months. Unfortunately, Cyberpunk 2077 took the dive in less than a month after release.

While its release could have been the most popular gaming event of the last decade, Cyberpunk 2077 looks like new content is needed. Fast. The reason is that the number of concurrent players recorded on Steam has dropped much faster than it happened for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

According to player count data revealed by GitHyp, more than 1 million players enjoyed Cyberpunk 2077 simultaneously before December 14. Sadly, their number went down after that date and in just two weeks, there were barely 250,000 gamers left who were playing the game. 

The drop mentioned above usually happens for most single-player games, but when looking back at The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Cyberpunk 2077's evolution looks a bit worrying. Back in May 2015, the numbers were quite different, with less than 100,000 players engaged in Geralt's adventures. However, it took no less than 3 months for the number to suffer the same 79% drop.

Now, CDPR just needs to fix the game and add new content for the numbers to rise. Unfortunately, we will probably have to wait for at least a few months until that happens. If you are one of those who left or one of those still rambling around Night City, feel free to share your thoughts with us in the comments section.
